Re: head-to-head?
A lot of folks are getting out of running their own data centers. That doesn't mean they are getting out of cloud services or addressing the enterprise market. They are just realized that data centers are not their core competence and require constant updating and staffing.

EQIX may go 'head-to-head' with CTL in colo, but isn't CenturyLink - along with some of other service providers - looking to get out of the data center business. As for adding IoT to SMAC, I'm getting the urge for a new acronym....

More to come on this

Really nice article, and perfect timing. I've just kicked off some research on the evolution of the data center value chain. I intend to delve deeper into the issue of how data center operators, cloud providers and telcos will compete against and partner with each other as a result of ongoing data center transformation.
